Agent Mulder's Cup of Tea

Ever since JFK Jr. and Carolyn Bessette pulled off their stealth wedding last fall, secrecy has been the chic choice for celeb nuptials. Brooke Shields and Andre Agassi did it last month in California, and last week "X-Files" hunk David Duchovny, 37, secretly wed "The Naked Truth" 's Tea Leoni, 31, in New York. With fewer than a dozen guests, it was a family affair. The Episcopal ceremony took place in the garden of the Grace Church School, where Duchovny's mom is an administrator. The bride's dress was from Lily et Cie., the groom's suit from Armani; dinner was at a local bistro. Next morning, the newlyweds chatted, improbably, with gossip columnist Liz Smith. "We are thrilled," they told her. "We are clanking rings."
